Grimanesa Amorós is an interdisciplinary artist creating light sculpture installations and other multimedia projects around the world using light and space to create her artworks. Inspired by natural environments, cultural sites, architecture, and technology, she creates bodies of work that illuminate our notion of personal identity and community.

Her works are not about light itself but about its perception, and uses advancements in technology to render changes in light perceptible. Besides physical space and volume, Grimanesa Amorós also creates a space of perception between her objects by activating the light on the surface. Time and space are crucial for Grimanesa Amorós, in particular when she develops site-specific works that react with absolute precision to the circumstances of the chosen place. In Grimanesa Amorós’ light sculptures the spatial structure is supplemented by a temporal one: as in a musical composition, a program controls the LEDs’ intervals.

Fusion with nature turns up in many of her works, not just in the videos, but also very concretely in her site-specific light installations. Grimanesa’s main sources of inspiration are drawn from nature, focusing on how humans have adapted to live in a wide range of environments. Having a historical understanding of a space informs her creative process. The exploration of the communication between humanity and nature is one of the driving factors in the work. The projects are site-specific and present an immersive experience to the architectural spaces.
